Because you not trying.” Here, her mother doesn’t really answer her question, instead wants her put more effort on trying, neglecting how much she has tried before. However, in her mother’s perspective, she has never tried hard enough. By narratively stating the conversations she has encountered, readers perceive a strong implication of the reason for a future conflict between her and her mother.
The turning point in the mother/daughter relationship came at the end of the story, when Mother realized all of the horrible things her daughter was doing; not even necessarily doing intentionally. She thought that perhaps her daughter would change her un-appreciativeness, and respect her pride for her way of life and her valued items around her, but she had to decide between one daughter and the other. The one who would display the quilts and household items as pieces to be viewed and admired as a way of the old life, or to the other daughter who would use them in the way they were meant to be used.
However, sometimes children can't do this, so it would make the conflict of between the parents and their children. A book, Bitter Melon written by Cara Chow shows conflict between mother and her daughter. They weren't understand each other. Mother pressed own opinion to her daughter. Then her daughter's idea was enforced her idea at all.
The mother does not even respond to the comment that her child says. The problem is this story might have been resolved; it might have not been resolved. No one will know... ... middle of paper ... ...th her mother about the whole piano situation. The fight got to the point that Nikan said to her mother "Then I wish I weren't your daughter. I wish you weren't my mother."
Along these lines, Rosaura’s talent is a source of her blindness regarding the effect that her mother’s status has on her future. In summary, the initial segment of the story is that Rosaura’s lack of clarity towards caste in society and she does not understand that her destiny is characterized by her mother’s occupation. Toward the end, Rosaura begins to acknowledge little by little that she is not intended to be in a higher class of society. For example, in the middle of the story, the girl with a bow said to Rosaura that she is not Luciana’s friend. The bow girl knows everyone except for her.
(Yamamoto 390) Although she realizes this could be the end of her world, as she knows it she listens as a way to support her mother. The mothers motive for sharing with her daughter in this way can only be gleaned from Cheung's description of life for these female immigrants. By significantly placing the conversations at... ... middle of paper ... ...ealizes the absurdity of asking her young teen daughter to agree to "never marry" (Yamamoto 391), or possibly the absurdity of realizing who was responding, she responds by saying to herself, "you fool"(Yamamoto 391) The regret the mother expresses is a result of her recognizing the mistake she made in revealing herself in this way, or possibly her awareness of how young this confidant is and how just as with the haiku, Rosie does not understand all the complications life has to offer and has little comprehension of the world in which her mother exists.

From the beginning of the novel, Dedé dreads having to talk to reporters and the like about the tragedy of the Mirabal sisters from the perspective of the sister who lives. She reveals to the reporter that she survives by only focusing on the good memories, and when she cannot do so she “get[s] stuck playing the same bad moment” (7). Fate forces Dedé to live either with her sisters in the past, or without them in the present, so she chooses to remember the good times. However, she cannot selectively remember only what she loves about her family’s past, and thus occasionally is caught in an unending bad memory. Dedé primarily speaks of the good times and what made each sister so unique, but later in the story she gets caught in the bad times.
Not having parental figures is tragically detrimental to a child’s maturation, leaving them alone to figure out the world, which often comes with the cost of making misinformed decisions. As Esch is thrust into adult life, she strains to remember the teachings of her mother and is often left lonely and without instructions on how to stay alive and love herself as a woman.

Throughout the story of Where are you Going… Connie is caught in between that middle stage of childhood and adult and she thinks she has got life all figured out, but in reality, her actions of vanity and disobeying her parents prove otherwise. By over-nurturing and not communicating with her child more, Connie’s mother has provided this framework for her to be an ‘adult-child’ therefore causing her to be vain make wrong decisions; Connie wasn’t born this way, it was the negative over-nurturing that made her the way she
The narrator felt as if she disappointed her mother many times with the way she choose to live her life. To the narrator, a good life was not being talented or following what her mother asked her to do. The narrator believed that a good life was doing what she independently wanted to do without having to follow the expectations of her mother. Both the narrator of “Two Kinds” and Laura had to strongly go against the beliefs and ideas of their mothers, although because they were so young and had little power in their family, both Laura and the narrator had to follow what they were told. Although both Laura and the narrator shared an alternating belief system, they didn’t share a similar social status with each
